I would love to know the roles as well. I was vanilla town. My only night power was practicing guitar which did nothing.

I didn't participate but I really liked following this game. The whole time I expected downfell to be mafia. Downfell, what was your strategy of constant aggression and trying to rally up the town members to go against whoever was "late to lunch?" It certainly made you seem suspicious. Were you just trying to get this game rolling, or did you actually have some secret goal?

People who idle are either mafia by virtue of actually being mafia, or implicitly mafia by virtue of not participating and therefore acting as deadweight (since idle players are the same as a 'no' vote). If somebody is idling, then it is in town's interest to exterminate them as soon as possible, because it is a guaranteed way to get rid of someone who is helping mafia (and, again, they're either helping mafia intentionally or by virtue of not playing). If town doesn't do this, then as we saw here eventually the deadweight creates a situation whereby mafia wins by doing nothing other than withholding their vote. I suspect mafia realized this and that accounts for our late-comer idlers.

I predicated every nomination of an idler on the basis of, "If they come back, I'll pick someone else" precisely because the point is to encourage participation or get rid of somebody not participating. That this didn't work even a little bit suggests our targets either were actually mafia, and therefore we were right to nominate them, or opted out of the game such that not even the threat of getting lynched would get them to participate... and therefore we were right to nominate them.

I had my suspicions about other players, but those were essentially irrelevant. If I pick somebody playing, my chance of lunching somebody in the mafia is less than 100%. If I pick somebody idling, my chance of lunching somebody who is either explicitly or implicitly mafia is 100%. It's that simple.

anybody not listed as anything is vanilla town and had no night actions.

cop can investigate a person and see if they are town/mafia/independent (for this game. other games can be town/not town)

tracker can investigate a person and follow them to see where they went at night

Time Traveling Doctor can go back in time to *any* night and heal a person.

Time Traveling Serial Killer can go back int time to *any* night and kill a person.

Three shot vigilante is pretty self explanatory. has three bullets essentially and can kill a person.
